CSW BREAKING: KC-MO Elderly Care Facility Evacuated Due to Water Main Break

An elderly care facility in south-central KC-MO is being evacuated of all it's residents due to a 4-inch water main break at the facility.

Electrical systems threatened by the more than foot of water that accumulated forced the shut-down of power to the facility- necessitating the evacuation of residents to ATA busses.

Those displaced residents were to be transported to other affiliated care facilities until the water could be pumped out and the electrical systems died out and checked.

So far- no reports of health issues to those being evacuated- but around a half-dozen KC-MO fire companies and EMS units are on-the-scene of the multi-story facility.
